Submission + - California prosecutes couple for filming officials (ap.org) 1

mi writes: California prosecutors on Tuesday charged two activists who made undercover videos of themselves interacting with officials of a taxpayer-supported organization with 15 felonies, saying they invaded privacy by filming without consent. State Attorney General Xavier Becerra, a longtime Congressional Democrat who took over the investigation in January, said in a statement that the state "will not tolerate the criminal recording of conversations."

Didn't we just determine, that filming officials is not merely a right, but a First Amendment right?

Comment waiting for something better (Score 2) 228

People were waiting for a good Mac refresh in 2016. The macbook pro finally came out but to mixed reviews. The direction Apple is going with their computers is hard to say. More adapters to lug around....Some screens get improvements while others do not...things changed for the sake of change. Why upgrade your 4 yr old computer when the new one has the very same screen? There will be a bump if Apple spends more of an effort to refresh their computer lineup. I have a 4 yr old 11 inch mac air and I still see no reason to upgrade. I am definitely not in the minority.

Comment Isn't the problem more to do with default username (Score 1) 230

Isn't the problem the default usernames and passwords not being changed instead of what ports they are listening on? I know I got an infected raspberry pi because I forgot to change the root password. The pi did need outside access so blocking the ports would have made the device useless to me. Stupid mistake I know but most people don't know. Look at consumer routers and their default usernames and passwords.
